Easy Baby > Soloing

Hello Folks,

This week's lesson is on the solo section of Easy Baby. In reality there is no actual solo on the Cobra (label) version. What Sam does is do a worked out rhythmic part that leads back into the vocal on the four chord. Now if you are playing this live you may want to do a solo to make the song a bit longer. So, here is my way to do that. We do the rhythmic figure like the recording then solo on the rest of the verse starting on the 4 chord. After that verse we go back to the figure then go to the vocal on the four like the original recording. Brad Hallen and I did a track with this arrangement to give you a track to work it out to. Do have fun playing this one everyone and please keep posting your videos so I can see your progress. And if you want to sing, please go right ahead. I really do look forward to listening to all of you.

Great lesson, Duke! I love those ideas, that is so enlightening. All of those riffs sound impossibly hard until you explain them. Can't wait for a track to play with! Thanks a lot! Best, Bruce
